Making the G+1 button load more quickly

Making the G+1 button load more quickly

The G+1 button is shown billions of times per day on web pages around the world, so it’s important that it load as quickly and efficiently as possible. To make it easier for people to load and share the pages they’re interested in, we’ve created a simpler G+1 button sharing experience.

Beginning in a few weeks, clicking the +1 button will open a streamlined new Google+ sharing dialog, and the G+1 button will no longer display a +1 count. If you’re a publisher, you can rest assured that these +1s do not affect search ranking and the size and layout of the button will remain the same.

These changes will only affect the G+1 button outside of Google+. The +1 button within Google+ will continue to work the same way it always has.

If you’d like to view all of the pages you’ve +1’d over the years, you can download a list using Google Takeout.

We hope this change makes it that much easier to check out and recommend all the interesting things you discover!
